(Closed)US State Department opens 2012-2013 Fulbright applications || Deadline: May 15, 2012

The U.S. Department of State’s Bureau of Educational and Cultural Affairs, through U.S. Embassy, Kingston is again extending an invitation to Jamaican scholars and public and private sector practitioners in the areas of science, technology and innovation, entrepreneurship and sustainable energy, to apply for the 2012-2013 Fulbright Regional Network for Applied Research (NEXUS) Program. The year-long program spanning November 2012 to October 2013, seeks to facilitate collaborative thinking, analysis and problem solving among a core group of regional experts, with a view to improve the quality of life for communities within the Western Hemisphere.

Jamaica’s Dr. Gary Jackson, is currently among the 2011-2012 program awardees. Dr. Jackson’s project entitled Hydropower Distributive Generation in Portland, Jamaica, earned him a place among 19 other applied scholars and mid-career professionals, from the United States and nine Western Hemisphere countries. It is believed that the program will form the basis for investment, innovation and entrepreneurship, bridging the gap between talent and opportunity across the region.

For the 2012-2013 installment, projects focused on climate change adaptation strategies, public health engineering and design, and disaster and emergency preparedness, are invited. As the program encourages the formation of networks, fostering joint ventures with long term impact, applicants must describe how they will explore public-policy research questions in the topical areas. Applicants must also demonstrate how their research project will involve governments, NGOs, businesses, and communities. Further details on the scope of the Fulbright NEXUS program and research topics can be accessed at http://www.kingston.usembassy.gov.

The online application process is currently open and will close on May 15, 2012. Interested persons may access the application at https://apply.embark.com/student/fulbright/scholars/30/. Questions regarding the program may be submitted to kingstonexchanges@state.gov.
